Description: This book documents the 1953 Sierra Club Base Camp outings, the largest attended up to this date, with 576 participants over six weeks. This trip was held in Mono Valley along Mill Creek near Mono Lake on the east side of the California Sierra Nevada. The book documents the activities of participants, including a survey of the glaciation of the Mono Creek Watershed; a study of volcanism on the Volcanic Knob Plateau; notes on the 594 species of plants collection for the California Academy of Sciences; bird inventories; and accounts of various hikes and climbs. Additionally, there are many creative works included in the book, such as poems and songs reportedly sung around the camp fire, as well as drawings. Numerous black and white photographs of the Base Camp participants and surrounding area are also included.
